Kinsol Trestle Hike- The Non-Trestle Part

The Kinsol Trestle hike we went on this past weekend is gorgeous, and gives some great views of a very impressive wooden trestle. But it also has some short but beautiful trails through the forest near the trestle as well.

This is the little trail that wound down to the base of the trestle and the gorgeous little stream down below.

I had a more noble looking photo, but the silly grin fits him

I would say, if you make it out for this hike, it would be a shame to not hike down to the river while you are there. I am sure on hot days the river is likely busy, but there are quite a few semi-accessible spots (trails are steep to get to the river itself, so not suitable if you aren't able to do a bit of a scramble).

The river itself is beautiful. Very Pacific-northwest with the deep greens and variety of mosses and ferns.

The dogs enjoyed an opportunity to cool off and play around on shore for a bit before we headed back to the car.

  1. What a great way to spend the day. Love that last photo especially <3

  2. What a pretty pace! I love that grinning photo (well, actually I love them all, but that one is just especially cute).
